Voyagaire is definitely the best houseboat/lodge organization from Crane Lake to Lake Kabetogama. Jim, Gretchen, and Denise are superb, helping all guests with whatever they need to make the most of their vacation. This is our second annual family stay (12 people total) The lodge, lounge and restaurant are great (food is great). The houseboats are always immaculately cleaned and the Hospitality service on the the water is awesome, as they will bring you ANYTHING you need (providing you put in a call by 10 am). Prices for supplies weren't exceptionally outrageous, although they really could charge whatever they want considering that you are a captive audience (in need of a case of beer and no store in sight :-)). They were little high on some of the fresh produce but low on canned goods and other common items. If you don't get the linen package, be sure to bring plenty of dish towels, sheets, and hand towels as they are not provided. Weather for the week was perfect, horseflies and deer flies were bad on a couple of the islands. We used a product called "Hot Shot" to spray the perimeter of the boat, doors, campsites (do not use on body or clothing) and it worked great to keep most bugs away. I would recommend a couple cans for the week.
All in all, I would recommend Voyagaire to anyone interested in staying on Crane Lake or any of the Voyageur Park lakes. It is a vacation of a lifetime.
